The Cavs will be fine. Much ado about nothing.

Disagree totally, look @ their roster, name me the good defenders , espically on the wing. Itís the  oldest team in the league , Crowder has seriously slipped , played 20 min tonight and did nothing and Wade And Korver played 20 + min and were useless . Iíll take my chances with those 3 playing 20 plus minutes every day of the week. This isnít the same Cavs team, you think IT is gonna make them a top defensive team, no chance . I like our roster so much better.

Question:

Has any team with playoff aspirations ever opened up a season with a schedule THIS easy and done This badly?

Five of their first seven games have been against lottery bound teams, and they've gone 1-4 in those games - including 20 point blowouts in three of them.

That's bad...not just by Cavs standards, but by ANY standards.

Oh, I've seen their roster, and it's certainly not impressive, but that's how most of LeBron's Cavs teams have been: LeBron, in recent years Kyrie, and a bunch of old guys and castoffs. Their success in recent seasons is a testament to just how good LeBron is.

They're missing that second go-to scorer right now with IT out, but their current roster isn't really substantially different from those of recent seasons. And I'm not saying they'll finish ahead of Boston in the regular season, but I've learned to never write off a LeBron team until it's been eliminated, and we're far, far from that.

I understand your point but things have changed obviously. No Kyrie and LeBron a year older, & what if IT isnít the same then your relying on those said players and its big trouble. You can only get away with being a poor defensive team for so long. There could be more injuries as well. This Cavs team is not constructed to withstand any of those things in my opinion . Sometimes the well runs dry, and it happens to teams fast, espically old ones.

Every time I watch a Cavs game it just seems like they criminally underutilize Kevin Love at all times.

2012 Celtics started 4-8

eventually forced James led heat to 7 games.

And if Lebum tweaks an ankle or any injury that keeps him out for just 2 weeks and they might not even make the playoffs...which really puts a smile to my face because im pretty much sick of lebron being the story of the playoffs evwry freaking year...honestly I want them winning 30 games and out of the playoffs by a hairline.

Lebron could miss over a month and theyd still make the playoffs.

I cannot believe they are only playing Crowder 22 MPG. He needs to be playing more to give to give them some more solid defensive line ups. No reason to be playing Jeff Green so much when Crowder isn't maxed out.

They are not a good team. If they expect IT to be a superstar and save them after not playing organized basketball for 6 months they are going to be disappointed

The lockout season plus Rose getting hurt in the first-round of playoffs, allowing the 76ers to upset the #1 seeded Bulls. Those were some factors that helped the Celtics down the postseason run.

I imagine Lebron is looking at barbers and gardners in LA this week
